a buddy of mine bought these same ones in chrome for his IS and they didnt fit all that great, i dont think his were the right offset, they kind of stuck out a little. I'd write the guy first and ask him what the offset is on those. Great looking rims though, especially on that msm sprot design. Good luck

They'd look GREAT on a GGP or MSM. If I had one of those colors, I'd bid on them right now and steal them from you :p

Motegi doesn't make a lot of offsets

Mayo has a set on his IS300

And I drove for a couple weeks on them, 1 word :HEAVY

:suspiciou

Well the motegi's are cast and that adds to the wieght, so I mean obviously cast is going ot be a little heavy.

I had Works and they were 18" cast, but light

dif technique I suppose. So you want 19" wheels, with a lip,and weight...

Well motegi has the Trak lite and Trak lite 2
19x7.5 +45 6 5x4.5 18 lbs.
Traklite I (they are a forged wheel)



just all really depends on the $$
